Aristotle said: “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.” However, that doesn’t just happen. It is made with special care, nurturing and lots of attention, therefor, for this to happen, you need very special quality time with your partner. The importance of quality time experienced during a romantic weekend breakaway is emphasized by relationship coaches. It’s so obvious and so necessary.
Add some fuel to your love life by investing into some much-needed Romantic Weekend Breakaway time. All couples need to reconnect with each other from time to time allowing valuable conversation and fun filled quality time to rekindle romantic magic. An essential component that may have been lost in the busy schedule of demanding jobs, caring for children and hectic social lives. Not only will your love life prosper, but your body, mind and soul will be able to recharge thereby reducing the stresses we all experience in today’s fast-paced modern life.
At Andante Lodge you can enjoy a carefree romantic weekend breakaway in one of our luxurious suites while you relax next to the pool or entertain yourself in our games room playing pool or table-tennis.
Experiencing a massage in our spa will transform your thoughts, attention and body to a relaxed state thereby creating a very conducive space for an optimal romantic atmosphere.
Combine your own list of treats from romantically decorated rooms with scattered flower petals, scrumptious breakfasts, candle-lit dinners, that special movie at any of many cinemas close to Andante Lodge or some adrenaline filled gambling at the acclaimed Time Square Casino. All just a few minutes from Andante Lodge.
Advantages of a Romantic Breakaway
Creates excitement during planning:
Planning is such an exciting phase in itself. You can either decide to do it secretly and surprise your partner with a fully planned romantic breakaway or you may prefer to plan it together. It then becomes a joint venture with both sharing the excitement of choosing where to go, when to go and what you will be doing once there. This process already offers some therapeutic value in anticipation of the event.
Improves mental health by reducing stress:
It may sound like common sense that a break from the stresses of modern life is very beneficial both mentally and physically, but this topic has been researched and documented extensively by many respected specialists in related fields.
Research has concluded that regular relaxing and total breakaways from work-related interruptions and stress, lead to heavily reduced risk of heart attacks and other stress related illnesses. An extension of this fact is that a healthy body and mind provides a much better space for a thriving love-life than otherwise. And to top it all, relaxing is not hard work at all!
By removing yourselves from your everyday environment you are also isolating yourself from the everyday stresses you normally experience. It provides you with an opportunity to distance yourself from your everyday perspective and look at your life from an outside angle. Often this encourages beneficial changes to your everyday life which in turn allows for your relationship to strengthen. Being in a relaxed atmosphere encourages good communication and it is a well-known fact that solid relationships are built on good communications.
A change of scenery, a relaxed atmosphere, fun-filled laughter, good communication and a relaxed body all contributes to a perfect setting to rejuvenate your bedroom activities. This in itself serves as great reward but also breaks down isolation barriers that creep in during periods of increased stress caused by everyday living, therefor you’ll get to reap the benefits of your spruced-up love-life long after you return home from your romantic breakaway.
Andante Lodge offers a perfect setting for your very special romantic breakaway. Contact Ingrid via call or Whatsapp on 0824648419 for more info on specials and packages. Go ahead, spoil yourself and your partner. You deserve it.
